One for Roger! I liked the looooong diagonal shadow thrown by the iconic bridge here. The bg buildings, rocks and islands were interesting extras. If anyone wants to play in a workshop, (eg to remove the small part of the 'real' bridge bottom left) please let me know, & I will load the original raw image resized to 800p.

Taken late afternoon with my old film camera, using Fuji film.

Bom dia Chris,
Surely Roger will be grateful for this unique photo from Golden Gate.
Superb POV/DOF, good colors and contrasts and reasonable sharpness.
Thanks for this oldie.

For most, they will shot the bridge. You take a picture from that bridge. I like it. Just a quick play in WS.. i don't really mind with it there though :)

Olá Chris,

Beautiful panoramic view with excellent light, colors and contrast. Sharpness is excellent tooo.

Hi Chris,
Very interesting high POV and such a nice play with very long shadows of perhaps late afternoon. A marvelous composition with this landscape shot, so soft and pleasant. A pity, that intruding brown bar at the left bottom corner which in my opinion could easily been cloned out! Good job from Yan.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Ciao Chris, great view of imprssve shadow, wonderful bright colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Chris,

The distance between the bridge and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the coastline and of the shadow of the bridge. The quality of the light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

A very different perspective but I like this exceptional approach of yours, Chris!

Great details and nice color contrast with amazing clarity and natural colors.
Good POV and well kept DOF in this breathtaking scene.
Well done!

Kind regards,

Good power s of observation. It is certainly a different perspective and even lovlier

Every time I go to San Francisco I always wonder who lives in that building by the bridge. I like your pov and I'm surprise to see a fog-free morning on the bay. Great pov and dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
